Internet Billboards is proud to partner with The Content Curator. Content as most of you know is one of the five pillars of success in this new digital age. I am referring to successful Internet marketing for your company, the other four in my opinion are listed on top, inbound advertising, mobile media, networking, and social media. As the Internet continues to grow at a super fast pace we believe it will become necessary for more human interaction from within companies and organizations worldwide to not only have a curator of digital content be an actual person, someone to find relevant engaging and useful information, but also someone to weed out all of the spam and blatant link farming. 

Content Curatos

 

This is all music to my ears as I believe the Internet is headed for the purpose that it was meant for which is an interconnected web of like minded individuals sharing their ideas and content. Another one of the five pillars of success which I have mentioned is social media and this one is also really playing a very important role in making this all possible. Social media is helping to create trusted groups and sources where you can now get some great tried and true information from friends and colleagues before having to make a decision. I am sure you would agree, this is really helpful. 

So here would be a sampling of content curation on a great piece on content curation. 

It’s counter-intuitive–especially to Americans. But often less is more. 

When Erin Scime wrote a blog titled: “Content Strategist as Digital Curator”, it’s pretty clear that she didn’t expect to stir up a whole lot of emotions and anger. Yet, that’s what she did–at least in part.

I hope you take some time to read this article, but not just yet. 

Internet Billboards is pioneering the art of inbound advertising, which is the art of attracting new clients and prospects to you product or service like a magnet when they are looking for it. 

This also happens to be one of the five pillars of success I have mentioned, along with networking, and mobile media. The thing is it all begins with content. 

Content is still king and engaging your users and audience with fresh content is really important, next you have content marketing and this is what The Content Curator is all about. 

It is a place to add content of your own. More importantly it is a place where I can get to know your brand and help you with the other things, like networking, social media, mobile media and 

ultimately inbound advertising. I hope to see you post some great content to The Content Curator.

  • Thanks for the post, totally agree 🙂

    First of all, “less is more”. Or, to put it differently, quality shoult prevails over quantity. Second – and that’s the power of your title – this is up to the Human curator, to select what goes in or not; based on his style or opinion if he curates for his own pleasure, or based on a mission and an agenda if he curates for business purpose. In short: less content, more humans 🙂
